- Wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds before and after handling food. Make sure food preparation surfaces and utensils are clean.
- Insulated, soft-sided lunch totes are best for keeping perishable foods chilled. A cold source, such as a small frozen gel pack or frozen juice box, should be packed with perishable foods.
- Frozen gel packs will keep foods chilled until lunchtime, but are not recommended for all-day storage.
- Rinse fresh fruits and vegetables under running water, including those with skins and rinds that are not eaten.
